I purchased an Ariens 1032 that I thought I could repower with a Robin engine I had on hand. Previous owner grenaded the engine and claimed the govenor was wrong. Shafts too big for the Robin to work It came with all the pulleys, I think but not the covers

On second thought its Maryland and it is a bit of overkill

That is in Nice Condition. If You look around, You should be able to find an 8-10 Tecumseh w/1" crank that's an easy bolt-on. That's a Beast! PM sent on belt cover.

Nice bones to start with. That will chuck some snow when repowered. I'm with Jackmels. I'd go with an 8-10 Tec. that outlasted its body. MH

Will be 12 v so unless there is a recoil handle on it you will need to rig up a battery.

I just repowered a simplicity and used a harbor frieght 301cc 8hp engine and it has a 1" crank shaft. Very nice engine and it was a straight bolt up, no troubles at all. Got the engine for $190 with a 20% off coupon. Straight awesome.
